A member of the Jewish Satmar Hasidic community in Brooklyn, New York, stand accused of 88 counts of sexual misconduct, including oral sex with a child younger than 13 years old.
Wait, it gets worse:
Now, four ultra-Orthodox men from the same Jewish community face charges with intimidation of a witness. Allegedly, the four men attempted to silence an accuser by offering her and her boyfriend a $500,000 bribe, and threatening her boyfriend’s business.
Yes, you read that right. They are trying to protect a disgusting child rapist.
And even worse:
The charges are the first time in at least two decades that [the district attorney] has charged Hasidic Jews with intimidation of a witness in a sexual abuse case, even though victims, their advocates and prosecutors say intimidation has long been a major obstacle to prosecution of abuse among the ultra-Orthodox. In recent weeks, Mr. Hynes has been saying that the intimidation of witnesses in the ultra-Orthodox community is worse than in the world of organized crime.
